  • 16.Aug 2017 (Last edit 17.Aug 2017)
  • Employee

Suggestions for improvement

  • 1) Treat union employees with the same respect as when I started in 1997. 2) Stop giving lip service to operator and supervisor safety for the sake of looking good to the public, when the reality is different.

What I like about the company

1) pay 2) pension, when I was an employee 3) reliable work schedule 4) vacation/time off policy

What I dislike about the company

1) increasingly adversarial relationship between management and union 2) mgt. efforts to divide workforce 3) prioritizing public image over employee safety
